There is no end to my love for Captain Blood -- the book and the movie.
When I was younger back in California there was a show called the Family Film Festival and they would show a movie a week. I loved it because they would show all the good black and white movies. Captain Blood was my second favorite next to You Can't Take It With You.
Gah.I have no words. Errol kills me every time. Turns me into a puddle of mush.Someday I'll be coherent while discussing Errol, but not today.Puddle of mush, I tell you.
My whole family loves Captain Blood. Errol could certainly swashbuckle with the best of them -- in fact, he was the best of them. I'm struck by how young he looks in some of the scenes, and how handsome.
Meljean: I'm not sure if I've seen the movie or not - probably because my Dad was a real fan of old movies, but I KNOW I loved the book! It was a romance books before romance books as we know them today of it's day.Misty: I'm going to see if I can track down a copy of this because even if it is slightly overacted by today's standards - it still looks wonderful.Suisan: *g* I knew you'd like this given your love of all things pirate.Susan/dc: You're right - Errol Flynn defined swashbuckling didn't he? And he was very handsome wasn't he - even though looks have changed somewhat. The hair though - uh nuh to the hair.
